KVGM "The Last Wave" (5/18/19)

Image
Do you hear that sound? Can you feel it? The cool ocean breeze in your hair, the salt on your tongue. It's the smooth crash of the Last Wave on KVGM with your host, Hammock, bringing you thirty minutes of the best video game jams(z) from all your favorite composers and consoles, each and every week from our beachside studio in sunny Aqua City Island. Sit back, relax, and get ready to catch...the Last Wave.
But it's Saturday? That's right, this is a special 'early edition' of the Last Wave as Hammock embarks on a little Hammock time. I'm currently inside an airport in New York City, which is nowhere near Aqua City, and I'm going even further from breezy Pacific Ocean. I'll be back in two weeks for more jamzzzzzzz but in the meantime, we've got something special lined up for you, the listener, as part of KVGM's new summer internship program. For now, enjoy the jams and I'll catch you back on the beach in two weeks!

Moms everywhere, rejoice! The smoothest jams on the planet (aka Mother Earth) are here to help you celebrate YOUR day! Whether you're spending the day with loved ones (see Katsuhiro Hayashi), or taking a stroll through your favorite city (see Toshio Okamoto), the Last Wave's got your back. It is baseball season so you could totally be hanging out, watching baseball, Mom (see Yuji Takenouchi). And the cherry on the top? BIRDMAN!

¡Feliz Cinco de Mayo! We're celebrating May (and Hammock's dad's birthday) with a little more fishing and mahjong and BASKETBALL! Yasunori Mitsuda soothes our souls with a track from a World War I RPG and of course, the show wouldn't be complete without a trip to an early 2000's European discotheque! Oh, and tomorrow...everyone will be friends. Mark my words.

We're a quarter of the way to the historic Last Wave 100 extravaganza and it's all thanks to listeners like you...and you! This week, we preemptively celebrate with a little John Hancock score, a hamster beach party, a pampering at the puppy day spa, and a very personal journey of robot construction. Are we okay with the inevitable future of a technological hierarchy? Can we survive in a world without APPS?! WHO KNOWS!

It's another jam-packed show (emphasis on the JAM) on this Easter Sunday. It's like an easter egg hunt...but we've already done the hunting and the plastic eggs are full of the smoothest VGM soundwaves. But we cheat a little bit this week...just enough to squeeze in a very slick track from the AdLib Music Synthesizer...but we make up for it with more mahjong, golf, fishing, and horse racing tracks. Even Bomberman makes a special guest appearance.

More mahjong, more golf, a little gardening thrown in, some baseball...oh, and of course, the Leisure Suit Larry series. Spring is already off to a great start and these jams are sure to make those April showers in your life...more like April flowers in your life.

Hi April. Hi again 64DD. Hi Amigos and Amigas. We're back with more breezy goodness, embarking on mystical journeys to Mermaid Islands and Dolphin Shoals. Once again, the allure of mahjong has taken hold as Hammock gets closer and closer to taking a trip to the local retirement home to learn how to play. It can't be that hard, right?
